ESSIR- European Summer School of Information Retrieval


Essir is the only world-wide school in Information Retrieval. It’s a scientific event with temporal regularity founded in 1990, which gave rise to a series of Summer Schools held to provide high quality teaching of information retrieval and advanced information retrieval topics to a mostly European audience of researchers and research students.
